This is an exciting time to join The London Library. We are a significant way into our ambitious capital campaign, having completed Stage 1 with the refurbishment of the Library’s main Victorian reading room and the creation of a very warmly received Writers’ Room. The work to date has been greeted with much acclaim, winning RIBA London and National Awards for the architectural excellence of its design. We are now working to achieve Stage 2, the final phases of our plans, which will include the refurbishment of the older parts of our historic Grade II listed building, the construction of extra book stacks and the addition of a roof-top reading room, members’ refreshment room and terrace.
